Love Bites, can I have some more?
Like the young'un reviewers born after Jerry passed expressing their gratitude for the archives elsewhere on the forum, I am a middlin' deadhead who on March 8, 1973 was a high school freshman and never got to see Pigpen in real life, and so am very, very appreciative of recordings such as this gem.
This show is all sparkly and hard ridin'. Just sitting at my desk, minding my own business and listening on a a laptop, my heart suddenly stopped and I lost all sense of time and space with The Stranger > Ramblin Rose > Me and My Uncle > Goin' Down the Road.
Pigpen is so righteous yet laid back, Jerry's strummin' is smooth as silk, Bob is crazy-sexy-fierce in his full glory,the drums are so tight just right, its the whole package...and so now I got to fill out my Pigpen file.
This technology is so amazing. Back in the day, you had no idea the bootlegs would ever be beat, and just listen where we are today. I love archive.org and the Grateful Dead Forum. Thank you all with all my heart and soul.

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live In Concert" March 21, 1970 at the Academy of Music, New York City, New York, U.S.A.
* * * * * "PIGPEN & KEITH Show" * * * * *
~ Classic Superduper 72' Soundboard ~
Five stars for the mix, recording, performance, transfer, & "dance-ability".
Pigpen's performance of "The Stranger (Two Souls In Communion)" is classic Pigpen, and the band knows the changes...NYC crowds 'LOVED' Pigpen.
I highly recommend adding this NYC show to your 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
It's a "Must Have" show.
NYC crowds always brought out the best in the GRATEFUL DEAD.
I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included. Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
Solid, "In the Pocket" performances of all our favorite 72' songs with Pigpen and Keith.
Here's one way to download this show:
The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer. RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at www.realplayer.com.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the LOVE from 1972.
